Great Blue Herons are native to Colorado with some of them migrating and others staying all year. Rookeries or breeding colonies can be seen in our region east of I-25 on Fountain Creek or Fountain Creek Regional Park. They feed primarily on small fish, swallowing them whole, head first, so the scales don't get them stuck. (photo by Jerilee Bennett/The Gazette)
